The fresh pairing might just work in YRF’s favour

Yash Raj Films next release Ishaqzaade has managed to arouse a lot of curiosity, thanks to its lead couple comprising Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra [Watch trailer]. The fresh pairing and the theme of the film has created some hype around it. While Priyanka Chopra’s cousin Parineeti was seen in a much-loved supporting role in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Boney Kapoor’s son Arjun makes his debut in Ishaqzaade.

The story of the film goes something like this: Rising from the ashes of hooliganism and small town clan wars, comes the love story of a passion ignited by hatred. Of two people. Born to hate. Destined to love. One kingdom. One throne. Two wild animals… unpredictable Parma… ferocious Zoya. A battle… deafened by sounds of hate, revenge, bullets and deceit. A story… about two fiery bloods (played by Arjun and Parineeti), and their fight for power and supremacy. A story about love brewing in a small town burning with hatred. A story of today’s India called Ishaqzaade, between a Mumbai boy versus an Ambala girl. It’s ambition vs dreams….

The film releases May 11, 2012. Click below to view stills and tell us: Are Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra the new hot couple?
